Within the back gardens of Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
Red coloured maple leaves drifted onto the ground. Qin Yu was alone, reclining on a carpet of grass with his upper back against a large tree. His gaze was slightly entranced, while his mind was thinking of unknown matters. After parting with Zong Jue at Qingxu Mountain, Qin Yu and his two brothers swiftly entered Qingyu Immortal Mansion.
Hou Fei, Hei Yu, Mystical Ice Lion Shi Xin and the others were chatting, while Qin Yu was, in contrast, silently thinking.
“Looking at the current situation from now, a sect had taken form within the minds of Fang Tian and Zong Jue. That sect’s martial experts consist of the Sword Immortal Lan Feng and the mysterious Uncle Lan, while the younger generation consist of me, Fei Fei and the rest. Adding in the fact that Sword Immortal Lan Feng had given that Immortal Realm’s Emissary quite a shock, I believe that the successive tasks will definitely be very close to perfection.”
The edges of Qin Yu’s lips unintentionally curved into a smile.
An investment is naturally required in order to achieve benefits.
After exhausting close to twenty percent of the Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stone’s energy, that was Qin Yu’s current investment.
Of course…… the interest will also be obtained very soon. Qin Yu’s target was…… Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones.
There was a glint in Qin Yu’s eyes. “A single Immortal Realm’s Emissary already has that many treasures. He should definitely also have some of that Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones. However, how can the Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones of a single Immortal Realm’s Emissary be enough to satisfy me, hmm? Devil Realm’s Emissary, Demon Realm’s Emissary, Dragon Clan’s Emissary…… Every single great Emissary’s treasures should amount to quite a fair bit. It might even be possible that some of the Emissaries possess even more Finest Grade Elemental Spirit Stones than the Immortal Realm’s Emissary.”
Meanwhile, Hou Fei hurriedly rushed over. When he saw Qin Yu from afar, his face became filled with excitement, “Big Brother, why are you here? Let’s go, Shi Xin and his two other Mystical Ice Lion brothers are currently having a battle with the mixed-feathered bird at the training ground in the west garden. Haha…… Shi Xin and his two brothers had thought of how powerful each of themselves were. Although that mixed-feathered bird is just a little bit weaker than me, but ah, his capabilities are really very strong.” Hou Fei was pulling Qin Yu’s arm, and wanted to leave immediately.
Qin Yu smiled, “Oh? Shi Xin and his two brothers having a great battle against Xiao Hei? Interesting, interesting, let’s go.”
There were times in Qingyu Immortal Mansion that when everyone felt bored, they would have a fight amongst themselves. In actual fact, comparing fighting techniques was an idea thought up by Hou Fei, and it was also due to his love for battles and fights that he could not endure loneliness.
Qin Yu’s mind, however, was thinking about the world outside, “The Immortal Realm’s Emissary has already descended. Ah, I definitely think that it’s about time the various other great Emissaries begin to descend in sequence.”
Immortal Realm’s Emissary Hua Yan and Reverend Ming Liang were flying beside each other. Following behind them were several tens of Loose Immortal martial experts.
Not long after he had descended, Hua Yan made a decision to head towards the side of the Loose Devils and rob their piece of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams.
“The Emissaries from various Realms… According to Ming Liang’s message, excluding that mysterious Sword Immortal Lan Feng, it seems like I was the very first to descend,” Hua Yan’s face carried a faint smile, “then I should really grab the chance and rob them. That Dragon Clan’s Fang Tian might have been defeated by me, but the reason should be because I estimate that he did not use the Dragon Pearl of Inheritance.”
From amidst the conversions with Reverend Ming Liang later on, Hua Yan came to know that the Dragon Clan still possessed the Dragon Pearl of Inheritance.
Fang Tian, who did not use the Dragon Pearl of Inheritance was already that powerful. Should he decide to use the Dragon Pearl of Inheritance, then it would be extremely difficult for Hua Yan to achieve victory.
On the other hand, the side of the Loose Devils which possessed the other piece of Sundering The Heavens Diagrams, instead had very weak capabilities. Of course, that ‘weak’ was also from Hua Yan’s point of view.
“Who will the Devil Realm’s Emissary be? Someone under the Blood Devil Emperor, or someone under the Asura Devil Emperor?” Hua Yan was silently thinking. In actual fact, any person sent forth by any Devil Emperor will make Hua Yan’s head ache. When those three great Devil Emperors even dared to use the three most powerful paths of the Modao in their titles, their true capabilities could be imagined.
Although his head will ache, Hua Yan was, instead, also not afraid.
After all, the reputation of Sword Immortals was also not created from baseless exaggerations.
“Humph, Devil Realm’s Emissary, I will first rob the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams before your descent. After the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams is in my possession, I just want to see how can you snatch it away from my hands.” Hua Yan smirked.
“Senior Hua Yan, we are arriving the Yinyue mountains,” Reverend Ming Liang reported respectfully.
“Hmm,” Hua Yan nodded, and used his Immortal Awareness to cover over the entire Yinyue mountains area.
Wu Kong Xue had led tens of thousands of Loose Devil experts, and transplanted fertile soil, grass and trees. Thus, the Yinyue mountains was once again restored to its previous appearance, while the Yinyue Palace was swiftly reconstructed under the combined efforts of various great Loose Devil experts.
As to why such great efforts had been carried out, the reason was also mainly due to the imminent descent of the Devil Realm’s Emissary.
Following the descent of the Immortal Realm’s Emissary to the Mortal Realm, the various Emissaries from the other Realms, too, will descend to the Mortal Realm one after another.
Lady Lian Yue had been frustrated for the past several days. After seemingly endless consecutive predicaments, even Lady Lian Yue suffered from exhaustion that was unlike any before.
Countless disciples of the Yinyue Palace were either dead or injured, the Yinyue mountains being ruined, and despite those circumstances, the side of the Loose Devils was also attacked by four mysterious great martial experts. Even Wu Kong Xue was being pressured during his fight with one of the mysterious martial experts. The arrogant disposition of the side of the Loose Devils had been completely contained.
Wu Kong Xue stood at the peak of a small mountain amongst the Yinyue mountain range, the strong winds that blew past him turned blood red in colour before fading away.
“Wu Kong Xue, the Devil Realm’s Emissary will soon descend to the Mortal Realm. I have just been informed, that the Devil Realm’s Emissary is someone under the Blood Devil Emperor, who in turn, is one of the strongest three great Devil Emperors in the Devil Realm,” Lady Lian Yue said as she walked towards Wu Kong Xue’s side.
There was a glint in Wu Kong Xue’s eyes. “Blood Devil Emperor?”
Although Wu Kong Xue did not know much about the factions in the Devil Realm, Lady Lian Yue instead, came across some news when she had conversed with the Ascendant Realms. For the past several days, Lady Lian Yue had also told Wu Kong Xue some fundamental knowledge regarding the Devil Realm, and Wu Kong Xue naturally came to know about the Blood Devil Emperor.
The Devil Realm’s strongest three great Devil Emperors, were separated into the Blood Devil Emperor, Black Devil Emperor, and Asura Devil Emperor. The Blood Devil Emperor was the strongest person in the Devil Realm who practised the Blood Devil Modao. Meanwhile, Wu Kong Xue himself, practised the Blood Devil Modao. If he were to Ascend into the Devil Realm, it would be best for Wu Kong Xue to enter the side of the Blood Devil Emperor.
“Lian Yue, you have to……”
Wu Kong Xue suddenly frowned, because at that very moment, an enormous aura which belonged to an Immortal, completely blanketed over the entire Yinyue mountain range. Moreover, the denseness of that Immortal’s aura was already at an alarming stage.
“I am the Immortal Realm’s Emissary — Sword Immortal Hua Yan. The lot of you had better hand over the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams to me. If the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams is not brought before me within the time it takes to finish a cup of tea, I will not spare even a single Loose Devil within the Yinyue mountains who had at least surmounted their Tenth Tribulation. All of them will be killed.”
The tone of Hua Yan’s voice was cold and indifferent.
To deliver the painting or to be killed.
There was not even a slightest bit of benevolence or righteousness!
To kill all the Loose Devils who had surmounted their Tenth Tribulation or higher, wasn’t that the same as killing off all the strong fighters at the entire side of the Loose Devils? If those super martial experts were dead, then the side of the Loose Devils would really become the weakest side.
There was a blood red flash of light, and Wu Kong Xue was standing upright in the air, visually inspecting that Sword Immortal Hua Yan from afar.
“Immortal Realm’s Emissary?” Wu Kong Xue’s eyelids jumped.
He had personally seen Reverend Ming Liang standing behind Hua Yan. For an Immortal to be able to gain such respect from Ming Liang, he should naturally be the Immortal Realm’s Emissary.
Furthermore, the aura which Hua Yan had intentionally exuded forth also made Wu Kong Xue feel a great sense of pressure.
“Half of the time has already passed, but I have yet to see the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams. There is still half of the time remaining, if I still do not see the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams after half the time needed to drink a cup of tea, martial experts of the Tenth Tribulation and above will become like that tallest mountain peak,” Hua Yan coldly stated.
Concurrently, Hua Yan’s right hand slowly touched the sword hilt behind his back —
Unsheathed the sword!
Immediately, there was a brisk intensifying flash of light, dazzling beyond comparison.
As if tofu was cut, the blinding light had easily cleaved through the Yinyue mountain range’s tallest and largest mountain peak at a horizontal angle. There was a loud rumbling echo as the entire huge mountain peak tumbled down, momentarily scattering away countless Loose Devils who were beneath it.
Cold sweat slid down from their heads, and Wu Kong Xue, Lady Lian Yue, Wu Hei, Fire Devil and the others all had drastic changes on their facial expressions.
Even Wu Kong Xue, too, felt that he definitely would not be able to withstand that attack.
“The Sixth Movement of the Seven Stars Sword Verse, how can its power possibly be low?” Hua Yan’s initial demonstration was already a ruthless technique, meant only to intimidate the opponents.
That was because Hua Yan was clear, that if the opponents really refused to hand over the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams, even if he had killed off those experts, it would be possible that he would definitely not be able to find it. The reason he came was not to kill, but was for the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams. That was why he had expended a large amount of power to perform such a powerful technique.
Wu Kong Xue, Lady Lian Yue, and the others looked at each other.
“Lian Yue. The Immortal Realm’s Emissary is really too strong, there is definitely no way we can withstand his attack, what should we do now?” Fire Devil appeared slightly anxious.
Instead, Lady Lian Yue looked towards Wu Kong Xue, “Wu Kong Xue, what do you think we should do?”
Wu Kong Xue was also silent.
He definitely did not want to hand over the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams, but the opponent was really too strong.
Just at that very moment —
*Honglonglong~~~* The entire heavens and earth shook. A severe spatial shock-wave seemed to cause ripples through the air, which shot off in every direction. Trees splintered into pieces, while giant rocks turned into dust. From a mere spatial shock-wave, the vast Yinyue mountain range had been reduced to sixty or seventy percent due to the destruction.
There was a spiraling swirl in the air above the Yinyue mountain range which continuously emitted various coloured rays of light, vibrantly beautiful and entrancing.
“Haha~~~~ I have finally arrived, haha~~” the sound of savage laughter was accompanied by a flock of blood clouds filled with an enormous stench of blood, which instantly covered the entire sky. Compared to Wu Kong Xue’s blood clouds, those flock of blood clouds were even larger, and at the same time possessed an aura filled with an even stronger stench of blood.
A body of purple coloured battle armor, and the surface of that purple coloured battle armor also had blood-red circulations over it. A head of blood-red coloured long hair, the entire person seemed akin to a crazed lion, violent and tyrannical.
“Du Zhong Jun!” When Sword Immortal Hua Yan saw who had arrived from afar, he unintentionally muttered, “The Blood Devil Emperor actually sent this lunatic over, looks like things have gotten a little troublesome.”
Wu Kong Xue, Lady Lian Yue, Fire Devil, Wu Hei and the other various experts instead rejoiced.
They knew that the person who had arrived was the Devil Realm’s Emissary. At their most perilous moment, the Devil Realm’s Emissary had descended to the Mortal Realm. That single moment had made them very emotional.
Wu Kong Xue, Lady Lian Yue, and two other people directly flew towards the sky, while the Loose Devils who followed behind them separated into two rows and bowed in welcome.
“Lian Yue of Yinyue Palace pays her respects to the Devil Realm’s Emissary. This person is Wu Kong Xue,” Lady Lian Yue approached and introduced themselves.
Wu Kong Xue, too, bowed and said, “This Junior, Wu Kong Xue, pays his respects to Senior.”
The moment that Devil Realm’s Emissary saw Wu Kong Xue, his eyes lit up, “Good, good, you practise the Blood Devil Modao right? Not bad, our Blood Devil Modao is actually the strongest Modao. You should feel lucky for practising it,” the Devil Realm’s Emissary opened his large, bloody mouth and praised.
“Lian Yue, Wu Kong Xue, both of you have accomplished a great achievement, His Highness Blood Devil Emperor bestows upon each of you both a Finest Grade Devil Equipment, accept it.”
A slender, blood-red long sword appeared in the hand of the Devil Realm’s Emissary, followed by a blood-red disc. At the same time, he immediately removed the Blood Contract of those items.
“Lian Yue, you have never practised the Blood Devil Modao, so you are unable to use ‘Blood Moon’. You can refine this Devil Sword instead. As for Wu Kong Xue, what you are practising is the Blood Devil Modao. Once you have refined this ‘Blood Moon’, your capabilities will fully increase by several times.”
The Devil Realm’s Emissary burst out laughing.
Lady Lian Yue and Wu Kong Xue’s eyes gleamed.
Finest Grade Devil Equipment!
“We thank His Majesty Blood Devil Emperor, and thank Lord Emissary,” Lady Lian Yue and Wu Kong Xue were both very respectful.
“Emissary? Hmm, don’t address me as whatever Emissary anymore, call me…… hmm, calling me Lord Blood Devil is good enough, haha, Blood Devil,” that Devil Realm’s Emissary had a very enthusiastic expression.
“Humph, Du Zhong Jun, you really have very thick skin on your face.”
A voice with a cold tone resounded forth.
“Hmm?” Blood Devil made a sound of curiosity in a cold tone, and looked towards that voice’s direction from afar. He immediately smiled, “Oh, so it’s Hua Yan. Hua Yan, aren’t you an important person under Yu Huang? Although we have met once before, I never expected that the Immortal Realm’s Emissary this time would be you.”
Hua Yan smirked, and said, “I really did not expect that someone has such thick skin on his face, to dare call himself a Blood Devil.”
In the Devil Realm, experts who practised the Blood Devil Modao had always considered the title of ‘Blood Devil’ to be the greatest honor.
Amongst experts who were in the Devil King domain, only one person was addressed as ‘Blood Devil King’, and amongst experts who were in the Devil Emperor domain, only one person was addressed as ‘Blood Devil Emperor’.
That Du Zhong Jun, although he could be counted as a talented genius, he was only in the First Tier Devil King (Heavenly Devil, Devil King, Devil Emperor, are relative to Heavenly Immortal, Golden Immortal, Mystic Immortal) domain level. Naturally, it would not be possible for him to be addressed as ‘Blood Devil King’.
“Haha…… In the Mortal Realm, if we were to compare the stage of practise in the Blood Devil Modao, is there anyone who can match up to me? You gigolo, what’s wrong with me calling myself Blood Devil in the Mortal Realm? Is it your damned problem?” Blood Devil ‘Du Zhong Jun’ responded in an airy and unconcerned tone.
That Devil Realm’s Emissary Du Zhong Jun, had only referred himself as ‘Blood Devil’ in order to satisfy the desire in his heart.
“This Junior pays his respects to Senior Blood Devil,” Wu Kong Xue, Lady Lian Yue, and the other people intelligently paid their respects.
Immediately, countless Loose Devils also paid their respects, “We pay our respects to Senior Blood Devil.”
“Haha……” Blood Devil Du Zhong Jun laughed aloud complacently.
“Hua Yan, you are the Immortal Realm’s Emissary, why have you come over to this place?” Blood Devil Du Zhong Jun’s facial expression turned inhospitable. Wu Kong Xue immediately replied from one side, “Senior Blood Devil, that Hua Yan came over and forcibly demanded the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams. He said that if we do not hand it over, he will kill all the Loose Devils of the Tenth Tribulation and above.”
Blood Devil Du Zhong Jun’s facial expression promptly changed.
“Fuck, Hua Yan, I did not cause a bloodbath with your Loose Immortal people, yet you actually came over to my place,” Blood Devil Du Zhong Jun’s facial expression was hideously fierce, and killing intent began to surface.
Sword Immortal Hua Yan frowned.
Hua Yan was also clear, that handling against Du Zhong Jun and his other people was quite troublesome.
“Let’s go,” Hua Yan said to the Loose Immortals, and shortly turned around to leave.
“Wait, Hua Yan, you don’t have to hurry to leave,” Blood Devil Du Zhong Jun loudly shouted forth, and at the same time used his Devil Awareness and Sound Transfer, “Wu Kong Xue, where’s the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams?” If the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams had been taken by Hua Yan, he naturally had to snatch it back.
Wu Kong Xue instantly replied using Sound Transfer, “Senior, please be at ease, the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams is still with us.”
“Blood Devil, what do you want by asking me to stay?” Hua Yan coldly replied to Blood Devil Du Zhong Jun.
Blood Devil grinned. “Nothing much, I only wanted to remind you. Practitioners of the Blood Devil Modao love to kill people the most, and I am moreover a genius of the Blood Devil Modao. I…… recently might want to go on a killing spree. Ah, you had better be careful, protect your men well,” he said with greedy expression on his face, while sweeping a glance through those Loose Immortals.
“Humph, if you have the capabilities, then come,” Hua Yan replied indifferently, then immediately led his anxious men away and left.
